Celtic midfielder Scott Brown has told The Scottish Sun that he hopes to finish his career with the Bhoys, having already spent over eight years with the club.
Brown, 30, emerged through the ranks at Hibernian, before his impressive displays prompted Celtic to sign him back in 2007 - and few could have expected him to have become such a vital, long-serving player at Celtic Park.
With almost 350 appearances to his name, Brown has been a mainstay of the Celtic side under a host of different managers, and has held the captain's armband for almost six years now.
An aggressive, scrappy midfielder who has always worn his heart on his sleeve for Celtic, Brown has become a fan favourite at Celtic Park, with his no-nonsense displays and never-say-die attitude striking a real chord with Bhoys supporters.
At 30, Brown is entering the later stages of his career, and today he was asked by The Scottish Sun whether he would want to retire as a Celtic player, given that he is closing in on a testimonial match, which he will receive after ten years at the club.
Brown's response summed him up, saying that he couldn't even imagine playing for another club having become synonymous with the famous green and white hoops of Celtic, admitting that he does want to finish his career with Celtic, whenever that day comes.
"Yeah hopefully," said Brown. "I’ve enjoyed every single moment of it and it would be hard to go from this club to anywhere else now. Playing with the talented players I’ve played with throughout my nine seasons to maybe going somewhere else and going lower level with the way football is going but hopefully it would be great to finish here," he added.
